060616 WATAWI PLAYING HIS PART
By Tom Kathoa
The Chairman of the Referendum Committee, Hon Joseph Watawi says there is a lot of yet to be done to educate the people about referendum.
Mr Watawi is challenging every individual, groups, churches and organisations to assist in making people better understand what referendum is and the issues around referendum like voting age, the outcome or result and how best to deal with the finale result or outcome.
He said due to money problem being faced by the government he had to hitch a ride with other people to convey the government`s plan on referendum.
Chairman Watawi says both the ABG and the National Government have yet to agree on what age group should vote.
Meanwhile, a lot of calls have been made for the government and members of awareness committee to visit the remote rural areas to explain to the people what referendum is all about.
